Whole Foods – 

why Whole Foods are better for you

Whole foods are foods that have not been processed. When food is processed, fat, sugar and salt are usually added and important nutrients, such as fiber, are usually removed. Too much saturated fat, added sugar or sodium can increase your risk of developing a chronic disease.

As much as possible, fill your diet with whole, unprocessed (or minimally processed) foods. You want to focus on getting a balance of protein, carbohydrate, and fat in every meal and snack. If you like to eat oatmeal for breakfast, lean towards steel cut or rolled oats, which have all of their fiber and nutrients intact, as opposed to instant oatmeal, which often has added sugars and other additives.

One of the benefits of eating whole foods is that those foods are nutrient-dense: They are rich in micronutrients like iron, zinc, folate, calcium, and vitamins A and C (among others). Combining whole foods offers the most nutrients, and that’s true not only because you’re getting a variety of nutrients from different sources, but because combining certain nutrients actually increases their absorption
